In Pure Solitude

These pieces of furniture identify with the values manifested within the environment of a church.  They simultaneously strengthen their origins by exposing the modesty which is exemplified in the profound works of local craftsmen. A long tradition in the field of the arts, has always reinforced these interiors, in a very coherent manner. In recent times, traditional craft work is still evident, the introduction of machinery however, has marginalized the individuality that characterizes the working processes as well as the artistic fluency of these makers. Their form serves a distinct posture and strongly engages with the longevity and significance, furniture gain within such a setting. Their life cycle is conveyed both by the enduring qualities of the material and its usage as well as the essence of their aesthetic charisma.
